Most of you know I was lucky enough to adopt a beautiful 7 month old Parson Russell Terrier named Brodie last month while visiting my parents in San Diego, California. We arrived home on a Saturday and pet (and human) training started the very next day! It’s been five weeks and I actually think today is the day Brodie and I will graduate from school!
We’ve gone from a horrible struggling leash walking situation to a very calm dog on a leash that isn’t being pulled. I decided that I wanted to take that a step further, but wasn’t sure I would be able to trust little Brodie without a leash all of the time. That’s where the Leisure Leash comes into play.
The Leisure Leash was designed to accommodate teaching, training, flexibility, economy and convenience. The best part is your dog carries the Leisure Leash and gives you a total hands free option for playing in dog parks, beach running and freedom in other open spaces. Leisure Leash is proud to say that their product is handmade from start to finish in America.
The Leisure Leash has a couple of parts. The 1″ leash that comes in blue, pink, red, purple or turquoise, is actually the the leash and then the 3/4″ black one is the slip collar. To get everything set up, I removed the 3/4 slip collar from the included carabiner clip. I pushed the smaller “D” ring at a slight angle through the larger “D” ring and reattached only the smaller “D” ring to the clip. Then I slipped both parts (the 1″ leash and the 3/4″ slip collar) over Brodie’s head and he wore them both like a collar. When I was ready to use the leash, I pulled the red (or blue, pink, purple or turquoise) over his head, and then we used it as a short lead perfect for taking him for a walk.
I do wish that the Leisure Leash had a slightly smaller set up for smaller dogs. I felt like this one was a bit bulky for Brodie, who weighs in at exactly 19 pounds (as of his visit to PetSmart yesterday), but in all honesty, he didn’t seem like he was having any problem with its size or weight.
In case my instructions above are unclear, Leisure Leash has a really nice instructional video on their website:
